    I have a KDF46E2000 and the same problem is happeneing. It was fixed in the past by pulling the lamp out and reinserting it, but now that doesn't work either

  • gdjfg Nov 10, 2008

    I can get mine to work for about five minutes and then it shuts down (3 red flashes) If I unlock the lamp cover handle and then lock it shortly after it has turned off, the tv won't turn on, but if I wait 10 minutes and do the same, it will turn on for about 5 minutes again. I've had Sony techs out twice to fix this and they are now figuring it may be the boards the switches are connected to because the switches seem to be working? All of this started when I had the optical block replaced so I think something got damaged when thr repair took place..I'm hoping! (KDF-46E2000)

Green flashing is normal. Red flashes are error codes. Count the error flashes.

3x - Lamp cover position or cover detect switch bad.
4x - One or more fans failed RPM test
5x - Lamp power supply/ballast failure
6x - Thermal fuse failed (usually)

3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
